KStreamRipper (formally KRadioRipper) is a program for recording Internet radios and other streams. For streams that provide information about the song title, it can split the stream and create an own file for each track - with a corresponding file name and corresponding metadata. KStreamRipper is based on Streamripper and provides a well-arranged user interface for whose features. Like Streamripper, it accepts MP3, AAC and OGG streams from Shoutcast-servers and Icecast-servers.
It is stable and usable (but not feature-complete).
If an entry appears twice for you operation system, then one of the entries is the debug package (=if the URL that is displayed in the statusbar when you move the mouse over the link has the text "debug" within it). This is because of a bug of kde-apps.org which catches also the debug packages. To install KStreamRipper, please use the other package.
All of the binary packages which are offered here, are part of repositories, which you can use to install the most recent stable release ("kstreamripper") or the latest development snapshot ("kstreamripper-unstable") or the internal API documentation ("kstreamripper-devel-doc").

If reporting a bug, please call "kdebugdialog --fullmode" and set the debug output for kstreamripper for all areas to "Shell". If you can't find kstreamripper in the list, set the debug output for "0 - generic" for all areas to "Shell". This will make you see the debug output when you call KStreamRipper from the console. (In KStreamRipper up to 0.7.91 will instead create a log file "kstreamripper.log" in your home directory.) Please add the debug output to your bug report. If you are reporting a crash, additionally install the kstreamripper-debug packages and include in your report the backtrace (displayed automatically after the crash) and the log file.
KStreamRipper has a very extensive internal API documentation, which is not only available as package (see "Download") and as tarball, but also online:
